Hi

We have installed Windows 2003 domain controller and Its working fine. Now we want to change the pre- configured IP range into different range.


If I change the range

Question

1. Will it cause the problem to run the server on production level.

2. How will it effect on the dns service ?

Regards,

Wijendra.

Shouldn't cause any problems.

Change the IP then restart the NETLOGON services, that should sort it.

If the server is a DNS sever then you will need to updates your DHCP scope options, and any static entries you have.

Also make sure to update your subnets in sites and services if the new IP/subnet isn't already defined

Thanks
